How To Paint The Town Red This Spring

How To Paint The Town Red This Spring

As we reported in our Melbourne Fashion Week article, red is the in vogue color for the #ss17 season.  It is everywhere, from high-end, boutiques and stores, we are painting Melbourne red for spring.

In my eBook, Your Ultimate Style, I state that wearing red communicates vitality, courage, and self-confidence.  It also represents courage, confidence, humanistic, strong-willed, spontaneous, honest, and extroverted. 

People who wear red tend to be outgoing, assertive, vigorous, moody and impulsive.  They sympathize with others and can be easily swayed.  They can be an optimist, but do not hesitate to voice their opinions.

So this season, be brave and communicate your courage and self-confidence by adding some red pieces to your wardrobe.  As George from DEA says, "It's time to bring out your 50 shades of red girls."

Here are some key pieces, high and low end, we love and hope you will too.

1. The Blazer

We love this gorgeous Carla Zampatti statement blazer.  But at over $900, think about how long you will have in your wardrobe.  See why below in the shorts section.  Available here.

2. The Trench

In our spring racing report, we said how the trench was huge this year.  A red trench coat will be a knockout at all events.  Worth every cent. Available from Carla Zampatti here.

3. The Culottes

Mix up your wardrobe by wearing the dominant colour red, with a pastel pink, another fabulous colour for the season.  Culottes are huge this season and fabulous to wear with in vogue metallic shoes. Culottes are from Witchery fashion, available here.

Amplify your feminine lace dress with a vivid shade of red.  Wear with this seasons "rose gold" metallic shoes, drop earrings and a gorgeous clutch for a stunning look.  Wear night and day.  From Witchery here.  PS: Notice the image - red with pink, they are huge together this season.

5. The Shorts

If you don't want to blow your spring budget on a designer blazer, then look for one like this in a department store or boutiques. I fell in love with these shorts at first sight.  Super comfortable and gorgeous length and slimming in the tummy area from Witchery.
